Profile and Philosophy
The Design and Construction Process can
be thought of much as a dialogue or conversation.
The best design and the most successful construction
work is accomplished when, as a team of Owner, Architect and
Contractor, we stay close to this concept and keep the
conversation open and clear.
We take this dialogue seriously, for, as Winston
Churchill once said “We shape our buildings;
thereafter they shape us.”
We also look beyond this observation to include the
environment as ‘shaped’ by our work as well, and therefore
sustainability is always a design factor of significance at
least, if not a primary objective.
Our buildings should be representative of an effort
to both raise humanity and enhance the environment.
Finally, our primary interest is to see the client’s
goals and objectives realized, including time and budget
constraints, not our own agenda superimposed.
We will listen, respond, design and build with that
always in mind.
